Accepted name: presilphiperfolanol synthase
Reaction: (2E,6E)-farnesyl diphosphate + H2O = presilphiperfolan-8β-ol + diphosphate
Other name(s): BcBOT2; CND15
Systematic name: (2E,6E)-farnesyl-diphosphate diphosphohydrolase (presilphiperfolan-8β-ol-forming)
Comments: Requires Mg2+. Presilphiperfolan-8β-ol is the precursor of botrydial, a phytotoxic sesquiterpene metabolite secreted by the fungus Botryotinia fuckeliana (Botrytis cinerea), the causal agent of gray mold disease in plants.
